Research and education are the cornerstones to advancing the treatment of hepato-pancreato-biliary diseases. The AHPB Foundation is dedicated to funding research and educational opportunities directly impacting HPB diseases.
Established in 2010, the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Foundation (AHPBF) seeks to support the academic careers of young researchers in the study of diseases of the liver, bile duct and pancreas by fostering and advancing the educational, research and training activities of the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association, and thereby enhancing the quality of hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery and patient care.
Research, education and training are dramatically increasing the quality of surgery and treatment. Most importantly, our patients see the direct results of our commitment to relieve the human suffering caused by HPB disorders throughout the world.
